The Patiala police have booked a Pepsu Road Transport Corporation (PRTC) driver for rash driving after he allegedly rammed into a two-wheeler.

The suspect driver, identified as Sukhvir Singh, has been booked under Sections 279, 337 and 427 of the IPC.

The PRTC bus driver had allegedly hit a scooterist on the DCW Road here on Wednesday morning.

The video of the entire incident has already been making rounds on social media. In the video, the PRTC bus rams into a two-wheeler that is coming from the opposite side. The bus clearly went to the other side of the road and hit the two-wheeler. Both the riders were injured in the incident.

When asked about the accident, Transport Minister Amrinder Singh Raja Warring said he would direct senior officials to take action against such drivers. The minister was in the city for a surprise visit today.

Meanwhile, Nitish Singla, Additional Managing Director, PRTC, said there was an SOS button in the bus to complain about the bus driver or conductor. The PRTC also has a GPS tracking system, whereby they can monitor the buses exceeding the speed limit, Singla added.
